This image of the Waxing Gibbous Moon taken on a Friday night exposes the moon mare and craters so clearly. When I shared this photo with my friends here, they were curious as to what telescope I had used to photograph the Moon. When I told them that it was taken from a camera, they could not believe it. It is truly amazing what a conventional camera could do, thanks to modern technology. Earth's moon is really fascinating, a celestial object so far away, like this moon at 379,776 km away when photographed really inspire me to study the moon features. This waxing gibbous moon was 69.4% illuminated.
